. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several sets of issues in metal blocks tonight. in each case i'm going to open up. i'm going to open the discussion with a quote from one or two of the panelists. we will then have some interaction. among the panelists and then i will ask them a couple of questions about related issues. following that at end of each one of these 320 or 25 minute sections i am going to look to you for questions so we can keep this as interactive as possible and have you as engaged in the discussion as possible. at the very end there will even be a little more time so that if we haven't covered something in the context of these three themes, then you will be able to introduce them into the discussion and we will wrap up promptly at 8:00 tonight. when we do get to the questions and answers a would be good if you would identify yourself and keep your statement in the form of a question rather than a narration. i've already spoken to them about the sam
who lost in 1972, bob dole -- on november 6 either obama or romney will face defeat. how will they handle it? coming up in a few moments, jill stein will be joining us from boston to talk about her race for the presidency. later, virgil goode on his own third-party bid. good morning, nancy. >> on today's talk shows, the focus is campaign 2012 and the upcoming presidential debates. appearing on several of these shows is chris christie. c-span radio brings you three years beginning with me to the press. white house senior adviser and ralph reid. at 1:00 hear "this week" including christ christie, haley barbour. at 2:00 it is fox news sunday. chris wallace sits down with paul ryan. the state of the union follows with guests including john mccain and roy blunt, martin omalley, and david axelrod. at 4:00, the host of the face the nation talks with crist christi, newt gingrich, and marha blackburn. they are brought to you as a public service by the network and c-span. they began at noon eastern with "meet the press," "this week, fox news sunday, state of the union, and face the
will, on governor romney and his lack of specifics and an agenda. you have to weave and bob at the same time. that's what a good debater does. >> let me bring in anne. is this a good strategy. you say you promised you would create 1 million new manufacturing jobs and hiring 100,000 math and science teachers and he talked about the jobs bill blokd by republicans and transportation bill blocked by republicans. is that the follow-up? how do you break this fever if it exists to a second term? >> i think chris is right. i think he has to do that to a certain extent. we saw the idea of running against congress work well in the past. congress has a lower approval rating than the president or mitt romney at this point. you can do a certain extent of blaming congress, but he has to talk about his own vision or what he would do if he got congress to do it and then turn it back on romney, and say, what would he do? we haven't heard the specifics. bobbing and we'aving is one way to put it as chris did. he'll do all of that. we heard from the advisers they practice giving short answers, so let's see
, bob. we did. got it. >>> a rough comparison for mitt romney. jack cafferty is following that. he is joining us now. jack? >> wolf, something here that ought to give camp romney heartburn. there is a poll out that finds the republican candidate for prident, mitt romney, is less popular than george w. bush. bloomberg news did this survey, shows the former president with a favorability rating of 46% compared to 43% for mitt romney. bush gets an unfavorable rating of 49%. romney gets 50%. bush's favorables are higher than joe biden paul ryan and the republican party in general. it is well known romney's favorability numbers are lower than the president's many believe romney, mega-rich businessman, who once tied the family dog to the roof of his car, doesn't seem able to connect with a lot of ordinary voters out will but less popular than george w. bush, that's cold. for start i, romney and his campaign have done everything in their power to make americans forget about george w. bush in his eight years as president. romney avoids mentioning the form president's name. bush was nowhere
. bob schieffer of cbs news as well as candy crowley. there are stories in the paper looking at what the candidates seem to do -- aim to do. lawrence is joining us from michigan on the democratic line. will you be watching tomorrow night? are you with us? let's go on to bill in edgewater, florida, independent. caller: good morning. i will definitely be watching. i was brought up in the republican household. but i have been paying attention to the debates and seeing a lot of shows on what the issues aren't. -- are. i don't have the confidence after the republican convention that they have a plan, because they have been avoiding giving any specifics. so i really want to hear if republicans really have something to say. other than that, i really moved to an independent position. i am willing to vote for somebody who comes up with a good plan. host: what will you listen for in particular tomorrow night, bill? the economy, health care, what issues are important to you? caller: i thinik i want more honesty from the republicans instead of evasiveness. i feel they have been dodging questions
? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> all right. so there were new jobs numbers yesterday as happens in the first friday in every month. the previous month's job numbers are reported by the bureau of labor statistics, and some interesting things happened. so the jobs report, it's not that good of a jobs report at all. 114,000 -- not at all. it was not some amazing jobs report. 114,000 new jobs. the big headline number was that unemployment, which is drawn off -- there's two different data sets that they are using, drawn off the household survey. that's the bureau of labor statistics goes out and does a survey of individuals and says, are you working? have you found work? were you not working before? they compute a percentage. the unemployment rate has gone down below 8% which is in some ways a manageable number because mitt romney has been saying on the stump that the president said it was going below 8% and it hasn't so he has to take that out of his stump. in response to this, conservatives, not just fringe figures in the communist red state starting sp
of you in the very back, it will appear something like an eye test. bob wrote or said -- he said the son of january 21st, 2012, if you want and point at least that statement. tom, do you agree with the assertion that right now or in 2000 call the united states is as strong as we have ever been? >> it depends if you're speaking about strong relative to what and to home. -- to whom. and in what area. there's no question in terms of influence on the global -- global stage. where the country that is still most emulated in the world. as mohamed el-erian said, it is possible to be the world's cleanest dirty shirt. i have to answer this question a little bit in the till. in terms of the things that have made the strongest berkley, i would argue that we have a formula for success in this country and it was built on five pillars. educator people up to and beyond the technology. when was the cotton gin, universal primary education. the factories brought universal secondary. and the laptop brought in post- secondary. secondly, we have the world's best infrastructure. third, we have the world's most
hangs out with the layers bob pfleger keep bringing those issues up. don't get over it. don't get over it. >> i never asked you this question. do you have a lot of money you have given away? >> millions of dollars. >> what do you make of this constant barking the rich don't pay their share. i live in new york i pay 50 percent in taxes. >> the rich are paying most of the taxes in the country. statistics come out that are amazing. >> it is like an amazing number. i was surprised to see it. they work hard they employ people. this is a very, very bad time. we are in a weak economy. this would be a bad time to raise taxes for any one whether it's the rich, the poor. now in all fairness less than 50 percent of the people in this country pay taxes anyway which is another amazing statistic. i wouldn't believe that statistic. the rich pay tremendous amounts of taxes. most of the taxes in the country and they really have to be at least -- rich people if they don't love their country they can go to other countries and pay a lot less tax. if you were in new york and the taxes were high you could m
supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> last year this billboard went up in a small town in massachusetts. it was a special election for a state legislative seat in the town of south bridge. this billboard went up on the side of the road. it says "show i.d." you do not have to show a massachusetts driver's license in order to vote in massachusetts. but this billboard sure makes it look like it, doesn't it? a few months later, there was another special election. voters inside the polling place in newbedford showed up to these guys in suits and ties. the sign says show i.d. to vote. and then underneath it it has some rules listed. rules. have valid government-issued i.d. then it says some more stuff. the last rule is voluntary compliance. this isn't actually a rule at all. it's just a couple guys trying to make you think it's a rule while you're trying to vote. after that election the massachusetts secretary of state ruled that it was illegal for those guys to be inside that polling place with their big sign
ask you one question. the last time we had an i incumbent candidate that was challenged, ignoring bob dole's attempt to bring it on kind of. listen to this in their debate. >> mr. president, what do you say to senator dole's point that this election is about keeping one's word? >> when i ran for president, i said we could cut the deficit in half and we cut it by 60%. i said our economic plan would produce 8 minullion jobs and we created 10 million jobs. >> i can only tell thaw i don't think senator dole is too old to be president. it's the age of his idea that i question. >> abby, if the president ignores him and goes as clinton did in '96, does that neutralize what you think is a good debater in mr. romney? >> that's exactly what mr. obama has to do. he has to remain calm and look like he is the commander in chief that he is for the united states and if he can -- if obama can be just who he is, there's no way that romney can get the narrative that he actually wants. but if obama can be himself, then i think that he will be just fine. >> abby, neera, thanks for your time and i think y

about campaign finance, and they took place in a world where someone like bob dole was the republican leader. and he was interested in making sure republicans didn't get a bad deal, but he was not opposed to the idea of reform or legislation. in today's world with mitch mcconnell as the senate leader, you know, he has spent years opposing legislation in this area and seeking to shut down the regulation we have. it is at least partially because of senator, maybe largely because of senator mcconnell that we have an sec that is deadlocked 3-3 and unable to take any action because it takes four votes. talk about a super majority requirement, a two-thirds requirement for the sec to do anything, so we shouldn't be surprised they don't. having said that, i think there really is a change on the way congress looks at this on partisan lines. i still hold out hope that after the election in a new congress they will at least take a look at the disclosure side because there the supreme court was crystal clear in citizens united 8-1, the one part the minority joined in, saying that disclosure of al
-- republicans, conservatives, the money are going to say, you're bob dole, we're done. we're going to focus on the house and senate. he's got to get past that first. >> there is new polling on the presidential race this morning, just two days before the candidates square off in their first debate. first the national picture. according to "the washington post"/abc news poll, 49% say they would vote for obama and 47% for romney. those numbers are unmoved from early last month. >> so nationally we're in the margin of error in this poll. >> all right. in the critical swing states, the president's lead grows to 11 points among likely voters. 52% to 41%. in ohio, a state where early in-person voting begins tomorrow -- >> wow! >> -- a new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president leading 51%-42%. in august that same poll had the two candidates tied at 45%. >> at 45%. if you want to know how badly things have gone over the past month for mitt romney, how bad september was for mitt romney, just look at the "the columbus dispatch" poll. he's lost nine points in ohio. it's absolutely critical that
to another. i, unfortunatelily, have to leave to meet bob kissinger who is arriving to the wilson center, but will from npr will take over for me. dan, over to you. >> well, thank you. i'd like to thank the woodrow wilson center and asian research as well as ashley, himself, who is certainly driving the process intellectually and a role model in bringing strategic studies and deep knowledge of asia together, which i think is part of what we are trying to do here. i thank laura, who is in the audience, not just a research assistant, but almost a partner in the endeavor. we think the chinese are nontransparent about defense spending, and they are. try looking at u.s. defense budgets and going through the various presidential statements, omb statements, naval shipbuilding staples, and we may be too transparent. certainly confused us. we tried to bring logic to it in the end as was our task. i'd like to go through five points, if i might. the first, i think, has to do with -- i'm putting the cards on the table, a traditionalist in strategic matters in the sense that political goals drive str
